Elafonissi is the beach you are sure to hear about when you visit Crete. Famous for its overwhelming beauty, the astonishing pink sands at Elafonissi are ranked fifth best in Europe as well as one of the best beaches in the world. This tiny island is separated from the shore by a lagoon with warm, shallow waters which rarely reach more than a metre in depth with several coral reefs alongside the beach.
While located an hour and a half from Oscar Suites & Village, the beach is truly worth the trip with its stunning scenery along the way. The historic monastery of Chrissoskalitissa can also be seen on your way to Elafonissi. Climb up to pay your respects and look for the golden step which, according to the legend, only the truly devout can see.
..Because life is better at the beach.
